I had the urge one day to bake some brownies, but I didn't have a clean bowl to use yet, and I was planning on using a saucepan to melt some butter anyhow. This is really quick to prepare, and you just add as you go along. This creates some fudgy brownies which is what I like, but if you like brownies that are more firm than you should probably bake for another 2 minutes.


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Melt the butter and then stir in the cocoa. Add eggs one at a time and make sure they are fully incorporated.
  3. Add the dry ingredients one at a time making sure all is well blended. Bake for 20 minutes. Let cool until ready to be cut into squares.

Stove top brownies ohh I was excited to find as my friend has no working oven. This recipe's deceiving as its cooked in an oven. Change the title please.

I have no oven, so I was looking for Stove-Top Deserts. I found this one and had my heart set on Stove-Top Brownies! Okay lets read the directions. Are you kidding me? Why is the first thing you do preheat the non-existent oven to 350 degrees. I did try to combine the ingredients as the student chef suggested and cook in the pan......It did not work.

Mine turned out uncooked. The dough was tasty though. I wanted a recipe for "Stove-Top Brownies." Stove-Top typically means just that, not oven baked. Useless recipe.
